Liver cancer surgery can be one of the most crucial aspects of treatment. To ensure the best care possible, many patients travel from Sarasota, Florida, to Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, where fellowship-trained surgeons see a high volume of liver cancer patients every year.
We are the third-largest cancer center in the nation based on patient volume. When it comes to surgery, numbers matter – and our extensive experience is what gives us the ability to produce patient outcomes that are routinely better than the national averages. Our surgeons perform more complex gastrointestinal procedures than the surgeons at most other cancer centers in the Sarasota area and elsewhere, allowing us to provide each patient with the best possible chance of success, as well as the highest possible quality of life.
When a patient comes to Moffitt for liver cancer surgery, our team will develop a plan to:
- Remove as much of the tumor as is safely possible
- Remove the surrounding lymph nodes to minimize the chance of cancer spreading to other parts of the body
- Minimize scarring and other potential postoperative complications
Depending on a patient’s unique needs, we may perform a traditional operation, such as a complete or partial resection of the liver, or we may recommend a minimally invasive or robotic procedure as an alternative. In our innovative clinic, we are equipped with the most advanced surgical technologies, and we are committed to providing our patients with the latest innovations in surgery.
We’re also committed to making it easier for patients to prepare for accommodations. Patients who are traveling from out of town can stay at one of our local partner hotels, which offer discounted rates to our patients and take special care to provide a safe and sanitary environment.
Patients from Sarasota, FL, do not need referrals to consult with the experts at Moffitt about liver cancer surgery and other treatments. To schedule a visit, call 1-888-663-3488 or request an appointment online.
